Red Bull and Verstappen, the fastest in free practice 1

Max Verstappen set the fastest time ahead of Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso. Summary and ranking of the first free practice session of the 2022 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen wasted no time putting his reference on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. The reigning world champion seemed the most comfortable at the wheel of his Red Bull. Surprisingly, his single-seater does not suffer from porpoising, or at least not as much as the Ferrari and Mercedes. He thus realizes the best time of the session ahead of Carlos Sainz.

Charles Leclerc (P5) finally escapes the 10-place penalty. The Scuderia failed to save Baku’s engine. However, it was able to keep the turbocharger and allows its driver to potentially take off on Sunday, in pole position.

Fernando Alonso signs the most impressive performance on the occasion of free practice 1 of Canadian Grand Prix. The Spaniard immediately attacked and signed the 3rd time of the session. Therefore, he focused chaining laps at a frenetic pace, to observe the development and behavior of the medium tyres. Opposite statement for Esteban Oconwhich remained very discreet at the start of the Canadian weekend. 15th on the time sheet, the Frenchman experienced brake problems at the start of the session.

Not to mention the mechanical problems, the result is very encouraging for the Viry-Châtillon clan. Will they be able to maintain this level of performance throughout the weekend? Be careful, the Alpine are accustomed to running on very little fuel during the first test sessions.

Lando Norris also has not been free from reliability concerns. The cause of its failure is still unknown. But the driver will be able to drive for the rest of the weekend.
